RHINO BUCKET 'S/T' CANDY283
 
 THEY SAY THAT imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. In the case of Rhino Bucket that could almost be true, with their uncompromising brand of riff-rock making them a close second cousin to Bon Scott era AC/DC. Not that they are mere impersonators of the great Australian rockers, far from it. For Rhino Bucket it's all about the cut and thrust of rock at its most ferocious and untamed.
 Formed in Los Angeles during the closing years of the 1980s, Rhino Bucket stuck out like a sore thumb by daring to ignore makeup and hairspray, adopting instead a rough hewn look and approach, a style that set them apart from the baying hordes looking to out glam each other. This was a band content to steer clear of the usual clich's and focus instead on killer riffs and uncompromising energy.
 Produced by Daniel Rey (Ramones, Circus Of Power, Raging Slab) and signed to Warner Brothers Records, this, their debut album, was issued in 1990 to a great reaction from the rock fraternity. Sure, the AC/DC comparisons might, to an extent, have been justified but the band's relentless attack and pummelling riffs injected a fresh take on a tried and tested formula. With songs such as 'One Night Stand', 'Train Ride' and 'Ride The Rhino' they take no prisoners, leaving all of their competition in the dust.
 
 SPECIAL DELUXE COLLECTOR'S EDITION, FULLY REMASTERED SOUND, 12 PAGE FULL COLOUR BOOKLET, 3,500 WORD ESSAY ABOUT THE MAKING OF THE ALBUM, NEW INTERVIEWS AND ENHANCED ARTWORK.

TRACK LISTING: 1. ONE NIGHT STAND 2.  BEG FOR YOUR LOVE 3. TRAIN RIDE 4. GOING DOWN TONIGHT 5.  EVEN THE SUN GOES DOWN 6.  BLOOD ON THE CROSS 7.  SHOT DOWN 8.  I'D RATHER GO INSANE 9.  INSIDE/OUTSIDE 10. RIDE THE RHINO
 

RHINO BUCKET 'GET USED TO IT' CANDY284
 
 MAKE NO MISTAKE, Rhino Bucket attracted several antagonists keen to shoot 'em down and pull them over the coals for resembling prime era AC/DC. Of course, right thinking individuals having heard the band's music, instantly dismissed the complaints as irrelevant. Sure, Rhino Bucket certainly took a good look at the kings of boogie, but they were walking their own path to enlightenment, making for compelling listening.
 Formed in Los Angeles during the late 80s, the band made a conscious effort to avoid any hair band clich's and concentrate d instead on building a grass roots reputation for serious riffing, packing out sweat soaked clubs. Their debut album contained a brace of high energy tracks, designed to grab attention and put authenticity back into a scene that was fast dying on spandex legs. Indeed, such was the positive reaction to the album that the band actually achieved two turntable hits, helping to set the scene for this, their second, album.
 For 'Get Used To It', the band took the template one stage further, helping to craft an even better record, masterfully recorded in Memphis, at Ardent Studios, with in house producer Terry Manning (George Thorogood, Molly Hatchet). The spectacular results giving rise to some stellar tracks, such as 'Beat To Death Like A Dog', 'The Devil Sent You', and 'Ride With Yourself'. This is almost certainly one of the best high-energy rock albums that you'll ever hear.

MALICE 'IN THE BEGINNING' CANDY256
 
'WITH THE RISE in the early1980s American heavy metal scene, bands were forming from coast to coast, with California being the epicentre of the movement. It was also the home of Metal Blade Records, a fiercely pro-active active independent label dedicated to unearthing the best of the breed. Amongst their discoveries were Slayer, Metallica, Metal Church, Armored Saint and' Malice.
 A five piece of considerable fire power and force, Malice exploded onto the scene with lightning effect, winning critical plaudits for their demos and tracks on Metal Blade's 'Metal Massacre 1' album, and a dedicated following amongst metal starved fans. All this energy and excitement led to a major label deal, with label giants Atlantic Records providing the launching pad for their debut album, co-produced by Ashley Howe (Ted Nugent, Uriah Heep) and Michael Wagener (Dokken, M'tley Cr'e, Accept).
 With two guitar players (Jay Reynolds and Mick Zane) and a sound that combines the very best of British NWOBHM with American style power metal, the album resonates with excitement from the very first chord to the very last dying note. It's a comprehensive assault on the senses with enough explosiveness to take on a tank battalion and comprehensively dismantle all opposition. Check Out tracks such as 'Godz Of Thunder', 'Air Attack', 'Hellrider' and 'Steller Masters' for proof, if proof were needed, of just how uncompromising this band were.'
